2016 definitely had its fair share of ups and downs, but financially at least, it was very good to Taylor Swift!

The 1989 singer topped Forbes' list of highest-earning celebrities under 30 this year, earning a staggering $170 million.

On the strength of her massively successful last album and tour, as well as a number of endorsement deals, Swift came out ahead of the next entry on the list, One Direction -- including the 26-year-old singer's ex-boyfriend, Harry Styles, -- who drew in $110 million.
